Our business is global. SWIFT works with and for financial communities across the globe. We know this is a privilege as well as a responsibility, and we are committed to making a positive impact wherever we can. We are working to make a more positive impact on the communities where we operate and do business.
We integrate social, environmental, ethical, and human rights concerns into our operational strategy. Education, diversity, sustainability, community outreach—our belief in the importance of these issues is embedded in our company mind-set.
Our intermediary role in the financial industry also puts us in a great position to facilitate dialogue on these topics.
Our CEO also signed the “Women’s Empowerment Principles – Equality Means Business” of the UN Women and the United Nations Global Compact.
We became a United Nations Global Compact participant. The initiative aims to create a sustainable and inclusive global economy by calling on companies to align strategies and operations with the Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
